In this blog I will be giving my political opinions on both issues at home and abroad.
I will also focus on the issues that affect the people of Ipswich and in particular those who live in Rushmere Ward.
I will also try and give an insight to how I will be campaigning in Rushmere and Ipswich as we fight against the savage cuts imposed by this Tory Government

My week ahead, 21 - 26 September 2015
Monday 21 September, 6pm – Labour Group meeting
23 September, 6pm - Ipswich Borough, Full Council Meeting
Friday 25 September, 10am – Opening of World
War One exhibition at the Town Hall
26 September 9.45am - Laying of paving
slabs to commemorate the two Ipswich residents who won the Victoria Cross
during World War One
Saturday will be a proud moment for as I have
been given the honour of reading out the citations of the two Ipswich men who
won the Victoria Cross during WW1. The readings will be part of the ceremony when
we lay two paving slabs at the Sloane Street entrance to Christchurch Park to
honour our two VC winner.
Our local ‘memory loss’ Tory has defended his
comments about Syrian refugees but still seems unable to explain why it is
wrong for us to campaign about a development just outside the Borough that will
effect a number of Ipswich residents whilst they (himself and the Tory leader)
could campaign about the building of a wind turbine also situated in Babergh.
He did seem to imply that maybe no need to
campaign as there is a ‘Master Plan’ in place for the Chantry Vale development,
but that is not a Babergh Council developed plan it is one from the
developer. This week the local Parish
Council in Pinewood were critical of the development in particular the lack of
a workable traffic plan. Now I would expect Pinewood Parish Council to be the
home to ‘radical’ socialists – but they (like us in Ipswich Labour) have some
serious concerns about the proposed build – but at least the local Tories are
happy with it!
